NFL Playoff Confidence Pool Rules

  1. Each player picks every NFL playoff game for the week, placing a "weight" from 1 to 13 based on how confident they are that the team they picked will win. The more points assigned to a pick, the more confident they are that team will win. The trick is that once you use a weight, you can't use that value again in a subsequent week; that is, you'll spread the 1 through 13 weights across all games throughout the playoffs (there are a total of 13 playoff games including the Super Bowl). For each correct pick, they receive the number of points (weight) they assigned to that pick. Games are picked "straight-up", the line is not used (the line will be displayed for your convenience to assist in weighting your picks).
  2. Each week you select one tie-breaker game by guessing the total points scored in the game. This is used to break ties during the week for any weekly prizes. A running total is also kept of your tie-breakers. A prize can be established for the player with the lowest aggregate tie-breaker total at the end of the season when the Super Bowl ends.
  3. You must have your picks in by the deadline established by the league manager. After you submit your picks, you can edit them provided 1) the league's configured deadline has not past, 2) the configured grace period has not elapsed, 3) a game has not started that you already picked.
  4. If you do not get your picks submitted before any Saturday playoff games, you can still submit picks provided the league deadline is configured to be sometime after the game.
  5. If your league is configured to have a "bye" week, each player's worst playoff week will be subtracted from their total points.
